Pasta like Paella

Pasta like Paella

When you've run out of rice for your paella, pasta will work too. :)


Pasta like Paella

Adapted from essen & trinken 08/13

Ingredients:

300 g chorizo (or any spicy salami-style sausage) case removed and thinly sliced
4 Tbsp olive oil
2 onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
300 g cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1.2 l vegetable stock or water
400 g pasta
1 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper

Method:

In a skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil, add the chorizo and fry on medium heat until crisp, about 8-10 minutes. Remove the chorizo and set aside. Add the remaining olive oil to the chorizo-flavoured oil in the skillet. Add the onion and fry until translucent. Add the garlic and fry until fragrant. Add the pasta and 1/3
of the liquid in use. Let it come to a simmer and add the tomatoes and a dash of salt. Stir occasionally until the liquid has been absorbed. Add another 1/3 of the liquid and simmer while stirring occasionally until the liquid has been absorbed. Add the last 1/3 of the liquid and the dried thyme, and simmer while stirring occasionally until the liquid has been absorbed and the pasta is al dente. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the crispy chorizo on top.
